Calling out for ideas for our upcoming seminar series

Sep 10, 2015

The Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health in partnership with Monash University’s School of Nursing and Midwifery will launch a series of three seminars to celebrate their new partnership and to provide a platform for scholars, practitioners, community partners, and policymakers to share ideas, knowledge and experience about migration, settlement, multiculturalism and cultural competence. We have three topics for focus – but we want to hear from you – what are some of the details, conversations, and discussions you’d like to hear around these topics?


  1. How do we prepare the future service sector workforce for our diverse communities? Cultural competence of course!
  2. It takes a village: refugee and migrant settlement in regional Australia
  3. Practice innovations: learning from each other
